ETUCE

Dear Colleagues, 
 
The European Commission opened a public consultation to evaluate the achievements of the European Union’s Strategic Framework, the so-called European Education Area. 
 
The Consultation is available in all EU national languages until 27 June here: link
In order to access the questionnaire, you need to register to the website. 
 
Who can fill in the questionnaire? 
Teachers, students, school heads, trade unions, and any other education stakeholders can fill it in. 
We kindly ask you to indicate that you fill in the questionnaire on behalf of a “trade union”. 
You may also disseminate the information among your members. 
 
The questionnaire can be filled in by EU and non-EU nationals. Since the EU’s education and training policy has a great impact on EU candidate and neighbourhood countries, especially due to different EU funds and the work of the European Training Foundation, we would like to motivate member organisations in the non-EU countries to also express their views on this topic. 
 
How to fill in the questionnaire? 
The Consultation is available in all EU national languages until 27 June here: link
To access the questionnaire, you need to register to the website.

At the same time, you can also express your views in general on this EU policy. As a guidance please find the ETUCE’s reply to the questionnaire here which you can also use. Please attach any important document to your response, eg ETUCE’s policy paper on attractiveness of the teaching profession.
